One of the records that Manchester City broke during their run to the Premier League title last season was the number of goals scored in a 38-game season.
Chelsea's 2009-10 side set the bar at 103 but Pep Guardiola's men racked up 106 strikes en route to what was the most dominant domestic campaign in recent memory. The question now, is can City score even more goals this time around?
Such a feat would require Guardiola's side to average 2.815 goals per game across the season and while that is a high benchmark, Sunday's demolition of the Terriers demonstrated just how many attacking options the Spaniard can call upon.
Kevin De Bruyne's injury is a blow to City's chances of achieving this particular landmark but the squad depth at the Etihad is extremely impressive.
The Belgium playmaker provided 16 assists in the Premier League last season and while his creative influence will be a difficult one to replicate, the fixture list suggests there could be several more big score lines on the horizon while De Bruyne remains side-lined.
Guardiola's footballing ethos means his side are encouraged to continue firing in the final third, even when it's evident that three points are secured and it's that ruthless streak that makes this kind of bet appealing.
Last term it took three games for the holders to really get into their stride, their fourth outing of the campaign resulted in a 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool. Given how quickly the squad appear to have gotten up to speed this year though, clashes with the aforementioned six sides could yield plenty of goals.
In the months of September and October 2017 City played seven top flight matches, scoring 30 times and only failing to hit three goals on one occasion - a 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
It would be no surprise to see a similar tally this time around and securing such results would be important for those considering backing the 5/1 (6.0) about another record breaking year in front of goal.
